Default Corvette fuel pump

Well after having a few problems with my fuel pump, and refusing to spend the $600 on a new OEM kawie one, which is a bunch of bs because its a piece of plastic with a small pump in it.... I decided to make my own. I started on it yesterday. Got pretty far on it today. The fuel pressure regulator will be in tomorrow. So hopefully this time tomorrow I will have it running.

Keep in mind this is sort of a prototype... Everything is pretty solid though, except for the fuel level sender. Which isn't that important. I couldn't really come up with a way to attach is very solidly. Its got a heavy duty zip tie holding it now.

I will have under $225 in this... $70 for the pump, $100 for the regulator. Plus some hoses, fittings, aluminum for the bracket, and the filter. Funny thing... The ford car filters clip right into the OEM fuel line going to the carb.

I had it hooked up with the fuel line going into a can, it shoots out of there!!! Probably 10 oz or so every 3 seconds.

It was $70. And actually most chevys used this pump during the 90s. I just say corvette because it makes it sound like its a badass pump

Hey...I noticed on one of your pics on the brass nipple threads you used teflon tape.....that's a no-no in a fuel system. Might want to remove it before you get it all together. You'll eventually find it in the filter...or in the form of a leak. Other than that can't wait to hear the results...looks good!!!!
